All good points --

I worked removing asbestos one summer in High School  I've also repaired brakes on cars as an after school job -- so a check of the lungs is also important for me -- This and having done Inkjet printer development where the oil based type inks can cause lung issues makes this doubly important -- Colon cancer screening is doubly important for many types of electronics work as well as the Colon is where some of these items are excreted -- to cut one's risk of colon cancer one should  take Magnesium in an absorbable form (Mixed Nuts are an excellent source of healthy absorbable minerals, and cholesterol fighting good fats for example)

@Max : Probably wise to say that in England all us old ones get a Poo sample test each year to screen for early bowel cancer. All done via the postal service.

And for men get the prostate tested, I am on a six monthly monitoring of two tiny tumours, the great probability is that I will die with the varmints not from them. But the six monthly blood test keeps an eye on their activity, giving plenty of time to decide on any futher actions to be taken, should they decide to get too active.

@Antedelivian: Other good advice is to have a colonoscopy...

Yup -- I had my first one about 3 years ago -- the worst part was all the stuff you have to drink the night before t oclear your insides out. The next morning the doctor started off by commenting on that and saying "The worst is behind you" ... I was too weak to hit him LOL

This is good advice. Given that I grew up in Africa I go annually to the deramtologist- I have so many blemishes even my spots have spots. The dermatologist often jokes "Holy Moley". Of course socialized medicine in Canada means there is no financial implication to me.

Other good advice is to have a colonoscopy- Dave Barry did a great piece on this.

Leonard Nimoy, We'll Miss you

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
